This has been a hot bed of controversy each time someone fails to tip, tips very little, or leaves a rude comment. If I receive bad service, I leave a small tip. If it's so bad that I have to complain, I don't leave a tip at all. One example was that my waitress didn't notice that half of the food I ordered wasn't given to me. And she was the one giving me my dishes. Another time, a waitress didn't acknowledge my table for 20 minutes, even though it was really slow. If the service is good, I leave a nice tip. So how much do you tip?

I know many people state you should tip in those places that the servers earn most of their income through tips. But that means they must earn their tip.
I try to tip a minimum of 10% of the bill, up to 20%.
Right on - I have worked as a Server,Hostess,Cashier, Busser,& Food Prep. Yes - in some places we shared Tips. I leave 15% for regular service and bad service 10%. If everything was fantastic and extra few bucks is left or I hand it to the Serve
Or, if they recognize you next time, they can spit in your food. Unfortunately not all will be receptive to such things. A tip should not be automatic.
Tips shouldn't be automatic anymore than bonuses are. People "work" for tips and bonuses. Bad attitude, no service = bad or no tip. I do not go back to places where things have ever gone so wrong before that I felt that I should not tip.
